As the daughter of an old hippie and the mother of two I'm always trying to find ways to operate my life based on holistic approaches to solving common problems. I was interested to recently come across the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society and their healing team.
What makes this different from traditional approaches is that the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society seeks to teach people to have the power to heal themselves. In this sense I mean healing in terms of both spiritual and physical problems. I am a firm believer that spiritual "injuries" can manifest themselves in physical problems if not properly treated.
The history and focus of the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society is to rich and complex to be covered briefly here. Their practices have evolved over thousands of years but are still relevant to living life in contemporary society. Besides healing they have several rites and ceremonies that can all be learned and applied to leading a healthier and happier life.
